Wow, that's a beast!
Any idea where those sheds were found?

Yes but can not think of where off the top of my head, I will get it for you. Here is a little more info on the buck.

When the King grew his 1993 set of antlers he had grown 2 stickers off the left side. When the deer would walk he had a limp. This could have been the result of being hit by a vehicle or a poacher’s bullet. A few weeks after seeing him limping, the farmer who owned the land found him dead and his head missing. The buck’s body was only about 40 yards off the road in one of the farmer’s fields.

This 10 point giant was taken by John Breen back in 1918 near Bemidji in Beltrami County, Minnesota. The buck was not scored until the early 1950's and scored 202 typical points.

The Breen buck has a higher gross typical score than the Jordan buck but after you deduct six abnormal points it drops the Breen buck to 4 1/6" less than the Jordan buck. With a 23 5/8" inside spread and a 31 2/8" and 31-inch main beams, the Breen buck is truly a magnificent whitetail. John Breen died in 1947 at the age of 81. In 1970 an antler collector from the east coast, Dr. Arnold, purchased the Breen trophy for $1,500.00.

It's hard to post the Breen buck without following it up with the James Jordan Buck.

James Jordan Buck
On November 20, 1914, a deer hunter named James Jordan shot a monster Typical whitetail buck just outside of Danbury Wisconsin. Jordan was still-hunting when he shot the great whitetail with his 25-20 rifle along the Yellow River. Jordan took the offer from a part-time taxidermist, George Van Castle, to mount the deer for $5.00. Jordan lost track of his deer when the taxidermist moved. A distant relative of Jordan’s, Robert Ludwig, bought the rack for $3.00 at a rummage sale in 1964. Ludwig had the deer scored by an official Boone and Crockett Club measurer and found that the 206 5/8” net score would surpass the score of the then world record. The deer has since rescored at 206 1/8” net. Ludwig contacted Jordan to show him the huge deer rack and after 50 years Jordan recognized the trophy rack as the one he had shot. Ludwig sold the deer to Dr. Charles Arnold in 1969 for $1,500.00. James Jordan died in October 1978 two months before Boone and Crockett Club recognized him as the hunter that harvested the second largest typical whitetail in Boone and Crockett Club history.

The Martin Buck

When Ronald Martin first spotted this 37 inch wide monster he thought he was looking at a Caribou. The most unbelievable part was when Ronald Martin hung the rack in a tree. Ronald Martin was a meat hunter and didn't retrieve the rack until several weeks later when he just happened to pass by. The buck has 34 scoreable points that measure 249 7/8 inches.
